2006 T&C Rear Evaporator Replacement
I'm now a member of the Rear Evaporator Replacement Club. Yes, "Club." It sounds like there are enough of us out there to form a club.
My 2006 T&C with 50,000 miles on it needs the rear evaporator and lines replaced, and it's a minimum $800. The a/c stopped working last fall, so the mechanic has tried the freon, the dye, etc.
I'm trying to decide whether to have the dealer do the repair, or my local repair shop. I called Chrysler, and they said for them to even consider a claim, I must have it diagnosed at a dealership. That's fine, but has anyone had any positive results with Chrysler covering this replacement on an out-of-warranty T&C? I don't want to get it done at a dealership unless there's some hope of Chrysler covering at least part of the repair.
It sounds like this is a vulnerable part. Am I going to need to replace this expensive part again in another few years?
I bought this van used in April '08. So far, I'm not very happy.
